Barranco de Guayadeque, Gran Canaria

4.5
Barranco de Guayadeque is a cliff top filled with indigenous plants and natural caves originally settled by pioneers on the island. Visit the museum for a look at many of the artifacts they left behind. You can drive or catch a tour bus to see the caves themselves, many of which are still inhabited today, though they are now wired for electricity. Some of the residents may even invite you inside. A restaurant on the cliff offers traditional Canarian fare such as fried pork, traditionally prepared boiled potatoes, and local wine.

  • An exaggerated experience a unique landscape neopaleolitiche houses carved into the rock are worth seeing live there of very friendly people who make you into their homes to visit them. The rock-hewn Church the riatirantino excavated in the rock, all very typical is awesome I recommend going to visit anke se to get there you have to travel a road a bit tortuous but it is definitely worth it. ..!!!

  • Only the way up with the car is worth. You drive then between the impressive high mountains by and there are plenty of places to stop for photo ´ s. at the top you can grab a snack in a cave restaurant and you trip on foot. Trek, however good shoes on. There is a path, but there is no route marked on. Discover everything your own. The trip up was again very impressive and the view was gorgeous! However, here you have (almost) no range with your phone. Do you want to so get some information or contact with someone. Down yet, please do so before you arrive at the restaurant.

  • There you can see a church caved in to a rocky mountain and also many houses. Guayadeque is one of the most recognised place where ancients inhabitants lived before being conquest by Spanish army in 1483
  • Unexpectedly amazing. Go and see it. You won't regret it.
  • Absolutely amazing! History + nature combined! Definitely go to the small museum at the bottom first, it's cheap and small so doesn't take long but gives you such an insight so you know what you are looking at!
  • A beautiful valley with lots of history. We drove to the restaurant Guayadeque and walked around the local area. Although the road is a dead end, just park up and enjoy the views. This slice of Gran Canaria is great to go for tapas in one of the restaurants or visit the church built in a cave as well as enjoy the many walking paths around the valley.
  • Spectacular scenery. Good museum and interpretation centre. Quirky cave houses and restaurants. Great walking up beyond the end of the metalled road.
